OECD reveals 18 months of straight growth

first_img GROSS domestic product (GDP) has grown for the sixth consecutive quarter among members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).Across 30 of the OECD’s member countries, the economy grew by an average of 0.6 per cent in the three months to September, according to data released yesterday. The results marked the fifth consecutive quarter of growth across the Eurozone. Meanwhile in Japan the rate of growth hit 0.9 per cent, up from 0.4 per cent growth in the last quarter.Overall, the rate of GDP growth in OECD countries slowed, down from 0.9 per cent in the second quarter.The OECD – a Paris-based group with 33 member countries – estimated British GDP growth at 0.8 per cent, slower than the previous quarter’s rate of 1.2 per cent. Tomorrow the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) will publish its latest figures on British GDP, expected to show a 0.8 per cent rate of growth that would match the OECD’s calculations.Last week the OECD revised up its forecasts for UK growth this year, yet cut its forecasts for growth in 2011 due to the expected effects of the government’s fiscal consolidation plans. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks KCS-content whatsapp Sharecenter_img Monday 22 November 2010 7:18 pm OECD reveals 18 months of straight growth whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

James Simpson-Daniel: My five career highlights

first_imgRoar passionThe final one is another one that is quite in-house in Gloucester terms. It is jogging round at Kingsholm before kick-off and hearing the roar from the Shed. Even talking about it, the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. It happens every time. That is something I will miss tremendously and never forget. Kingsholm bowMy first choice is my home debut at Kingsholm against Rotherham (March 2001). I came off the bench and scored a try. I got the ball on the left-hand side about 40 metres out and ran in and scored. That moment is something I will never forget. I trotted back and the Shed were going mad and I thought ‘gosh, they are going mad for me.’Also in that first match I got my head taken off by the opposing centre – I think it was Mike Umaga  – and I stood back up with the taste of blood in my mouth and the whole pack piled into him. There was an element of feeling looked after and part of the family. HE was a Kingsholm favourite for 14 years and won many fans from well beyond the shadow of Gloucester Cathedral with his magical, instinctive skills. James Simpson-Daniel was forced to call time on his rugby career this month when the last in a long, long line of injuries refused to heal. We asked him to pick out his five favourite memories – and if he can afford to leave out scoring a hat-trick in the 2002 Hong Kong Sevens final, you know his choices reflect his one-club loyalty. TAGS: Gloucester Can’t catch me: James Simpson-Daniel in full flight for Gloucester against Bath That England team had a self-belief that we could beat them, but in reality it is something else. The whole thing – facing the haka – was pretty incredible.Charlie Hodgson and I were the new young lads in the team then. I remember going around with him, but the senior players were very good with us. I was very quiet and I was raised at school to respect my elders massively, but they were all so good to me. Johnno would have the odd word and ask if I was alright and Clive was great. In white v the All BlacksMy first cap was against New Zealand (November 2002). It was a re-match with Jonah and thankfully we won it (31-28). It was amazing, to have my debut against the All Blacks and it was gob-smacking to go and beat them. Honoured: Simpson-Daniel was delighted to be named Premiership Player of the SeasonVote-winnerGetting voted Player of the Year in the Premiership Awards (in 2007-08) is another career highlight. That was a nice thing for me. It had been a good season and to get that recognition from people within the game was a real high point for me. Unforgettable: Simpson-Daniel rounds Jonah Lomu to score against the BarbariansHead-to-head with JonahI remember my first senior match for England against the Barbarians (May 2002) like it was yesterday. Although I had played through the England age groups, nothing compared to that.I knew I was playing against Jonah Lomu and only three years before that I had been playing Jonah Lomu Rugby on the computer with my brothers at home! To know I was going up against him – well, I was terrified. On the day it went reasonably well and that whole week is something I will remember.Reasonably well? Take a look at this link to judge for yourself. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It shows how much the jersey means to the crowd and how much that has got to be respected by you as players.

Court rules for Albert Woodfox, now let him go!

first_imgAlbert WoodfoxForty-two years in solitary confinement is 42 years too long. Albert Woodfox should be released now from a Louisiana prison. On Nov. 20, the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed. The three-judge panel ruled unanimously to uphold a lower court’s decision to overturn Woodfox’s conviction for killing a prison guard.On Feb. 26, 2013, U.S. District Court Judge James A. Brady had reversed Woodfox’s conviction on the basis that racial discrimination was involved in grand jury selection in his 1998 retrial. The same judge had made the same ruling in 2008, but it was reversed under a reactionary federal law. Louisiana’s attorney general has appealed the recent appeals court’s decision.Supporters from around the country attended Woodfox’s hearing before Judge Brady in May 2012. Workers World activists were there and reported on it, reviewing the long fight for justice and freedom by the Angola 3: Woodfox, Robert King and Herman Wallace.Published in WW on June 8, 2012, the article said, “Woodfox’s case began 40 years ago, deep in rural southern Louisiana, when he and two other young Black men, Herman Wallace and Robert King, were silenced for exposing racial segregation, systematic corruption and horrific abuse in the biggest prison in the U.S. at that time, an 18,000-acre, former slave plantation called Angola.“Protests such as hunger strikes and work stoppages were organized by prisoners, as were political education classes. A chapter of the Black Panther Party was formed. Prisoners called for investigations to uncover numerous unconstitutional and inhumane practices.“After a prison guard was killed in a 1972 rebellion, officials framed the three activists and threw them into solitary confinement.” King got out of prison in 2001. Wallace was released a year ago, but died of cancer three days later.Woodfox was imprisoned at Angola for 40 years, and then transferred to David Wade Correctional Center. He has been kept in solitary the longest of any U.S. prisoner. Woodfox maintains his innocence; the facts are on his side.After the favorable decision in 2013, ruthless Louisiana prison officials retaliated and stopped Woodfox’s contact visits without explanation. After protests, the visits were reinstated but with such complex regulations that it is nearly impossible for him to have visitors. Prisoners in Louisiana do not have the legal right to see visitors.Supporters of Woodfox have initiated a campaign, “Give Albert a hug for the holidays,” and request letters be sent to Secretary of Corrections Jimmy LeBlanc, asking that Woodfox be allowed to have visitors. Le­Blanc’s address, fax and phone numbers, and a sample letter can be found at the Angola 3 News blog ( Also, send holiday greetings to Albert Woodfox, #72148, at David Wade Correctional Center, 670 Bell Hill Road, Homer, LA 71040.The fight is far from over.

Associated Press journalist kidnapped near Baqouba

first_imgNews RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Reporters Without Borders voiced deep concern today about the fate of Talal Mohammed, an Iraqi news reporter and photographer employed by the Associated Press, after the US news agency revealed yesterday that he was kidnapped on 28 July near Baqouba, 55 km northeast of Baghdad.“Iraqi journalists are often the target of insurgents operating throughout the country in a climate of generalised impunity,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call on the Iraqi authorities and the US military to do everything possible to quickly obtain Mohammed’s release. He joins the long list of journalists in Iraq who have been the victims of abduction, an increasingly common practice. Neither foreign nor local journalists are now safe.”Mohammed was travelling with a friend to Baghdad when they were stopped at an illegal checkpoint near Baqouba in an area regarded as a stronghold of Sunni rebels who support Al Qaeda. They were taken away by masked gunmen. Mohammed’s companion, who was later released, they were interrogated in a location he could not identify, and that Mohammed was beaten. Mohammed’s family has received no news of him since the friend’s release.Aged 40, Mohammed had been working for the AP since last autumn. The news agency did not report his kidnapping until yesterday because it had been in contact with the US military authorities in the region in a bid to obtain his release.Meanwhile, Hassan Shaheed Al-Azzawi, an Iraqi journalist employed by the Al Sabah daily newspaper, was released by his kidnappers today in Kut, 175 km northeast of Baghdad, two days after he was abducted. No information was available about the identity of his kidnappers or where they held him.An estimated 84 journalists and media assistants have been kidnapped in Iraq since the start of the US-led invasion in March 2003. A total of 42 were released and 25 were killed by their abductors. In all, 198 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq, including five AP employees.

Judges are now required to favor pretrial release and only order bail if there is clear and convincing evidence that it is the only way to ensure public safety and make certain that the defendant returns to court for future hearings. The defendant’s ability to pay must be taken into account in setting bail.Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Hilda Solis co-authored a motion directing representatives of the offices of the district attorney and public defender to coordinate with the county CEO, county counsel, sheriff’s department, Los Angeles Superior Court and a comprehensive list of other agencies to come up with recommendations for reform in 60 days.“Bail reform is a fair, just and common sense policy,” Kuehl said in a statement. “When people are held in custody simply because they are too poor to post bail, their lives are destabilized. They lose jobs. They risk becoming homeless. Their children may enter foster care. And for what?”Nearly 6,000 people were in Los Angeles County jails awaiting trial as of April 12, according to Kuehl. A disproportionate number of those held pretrial are people of color.Kuehl said she believed that in addition to reducing the jail population, bail reform would also reduce recidivism and stabilize communities affected by job losses and homelessness related to bail.Research around bail reform in other jurisdictions that supports this view has been published by the Prison Policy Initiative.Supervisor Hilda Solis, who co-authored the motion, underscored the burden on the poor.“California’s money bail system is unfair and unjust as it places barriers and obstacles in front of poor defendants who cannot afford to make bail, disproportionately impacting Latinx and Black communities,” Solis said. “Wealth should not be a factor on whether you languish in the jail system.”The motion offered no specific recommendations, leaving it to the workgroup to work out the details of new rules. However, a report on the effectiveness of various pretrial policies — requested by the board last August — is expected to be released next month.
